Oldtimers on Samos
For several days we had rain, dark clouds, grey skies, relatively low temperatures. But on Wednesday the weather was nice and the air clear with good visibility. On my way to Samos-town I stopped and took this photo!
These people from Holland had just arrived on Samos the day before and they sat down on this new "retired people" bench above Ano Vathi to enjoy the breathtaking view over the gulf of Samos with Samos-town and its harbour in a distance and the old houses of Ano Vathi on the slopes of the hill in the front.
Since Wednesday night, a lot of old cars came to Samos. They gathered in Samos-Town for the "Loumidis Archontikos-Philpa" Rally. During their stay on Samos they will have tours starting from Samos-town to Karlovassi, Platanos, Ormos Marathokampos. Today, Friday, they will arrive in Pythagorion in the evening. And there will be a party on the Platia Irini with rock'n'roll dances and music.
Here some photos I took yesterday in Karlovasi, I found the old cars in the harbour.
Weather is not so good, lots of clouds and: no gasoline on Samos! It's fun to ride over empty roads along the north coast.
